Vatican Heresy: Bernini and the Building of the Hermetic Temple of the Sun
by Robert Bauval and Chiara Hohenzollern | March 2014

Reveals how the largest Sun Temple in the world, built according to Hermetic principles, is located at one of Christianity's holiest sites: The Vatican

  • Shows how famous Renaissance philosophers and scientists called for a Hermetic reformation of Christianity by building a magical Temple of the Sun in Rome.
  • Explains how the Vatican architect Bernini designed St. PeterŐs Square to reflect heliocentric and Hermetic principles.
  • Reveals how the design was masterminded by Bernini, Jesuit scholars, the mystical Queen Christine of Sweden, and several popes.

In 16th century Italy, in the midst of the Renaissance, two powerful movements took hold. The first, the Hermetic Movement, was inspired by an ancient set of books housed in the library of Cosimo deŐ Medici and written by the Egyptian sage Hermes Trismegistus. The movement expounded the return of the Ňtrue religion of the worldÓ based on a form of natural magic that could draw down the powers of the heavens and incorporate them into statues and physical structures. The other movement, the Heliocentric Movement launched by Copernicus, was a direct challenge to the VaticanŐs biblical interpretation of a geocentric world system. Declared a heresy by the Pope, those who promoted it risked the full force of the Inquisition.

Exploring the meeting point of these two movements, authors Robert Bauval and Chiara Hohenzollern reveal how the most outspoken and famous philosophers, alchemists, and scientists of the Renaissance, such as Giordano Bruno and Marsilio Ficino, called for a Hermetic reformation of the Christian religion by building a magical utopic city, an architectural version of the heliocentric system. Using contemporary documents and the latest cutting-edge theses, the authors show that this Temple of the Sun was built in Rome, directly in front of the VaticanŐs Basilica of St. Peter. They explain how the Vatican architect Bernini designed St. PeterŐs Square to reflect the esoteric principles of the Hermetica and how the square is a detailed representation of the heliocentric system.

Revealing the magical architectural plan masterminded by the RenaissanceŐs greatest minds, including Bernini, Jesuit scholars, Queen Christine of Sweden, and several popes, the authors expose the ultimate heresy of all time blessed by the Vatican itself.

Breaking The Mirror Of Heaven: The Conspiracy To Suppress The Voice Of Ancient Egypt
by Robert Bauval and Ahmed Osman | July 2012

Exposes the many cycles of monument destruction and cultural suppression in Egypt from antiquity to the present day.

  • Details the vandalism of Egyptian antiquities and suppression of ancient knowledge under foreign rulers who sought to cleanse Egypt of its pagan past.
  • Reveals the real reason behind Napoleon's invasion of Egypt: Freemasonry.
  • Shows how the censorship of nonofficial Egyptology as well as new archaeological discoveries continued under Antiquities Minister Zahi Hawass.
Called the Mirror of Heaven by Hermes-Thoth and regarded as the birthplace of civilization, science, religion, and magic, Egypt has ignited the imagination of all who come in contact with it since ancient times--from Pythagoras and Plato to Alexander the Great and Napoleon to modern Egyptologists the world over. Yet, despite this preeminence in the collective mind, Egypt has suffered considerable destruction over the centuries. Even before the burning of the Great Library at Alexandria, the land of the pharaohs was pillaged by its own people. With the arrival of foreign rulers, both Arabic and European, the destruction and thievery continued along with suppression of ancient knowledge as some rulers sought to cleanse Egypt of its pagan past.

Exploring the many cycles of destruction and suppression in Egypt as well as moments of salvation, such as the first registered excavations by Auguste Mariette, Robert Bauval and Ahmed Osman investigate the many conquerors of Egypt through the millennia as well as what has happened to famous artifacts such as the Rosetta Stone. They show how Napoleon, through his invasion, wanted to revive ancient Egyptian wisdom and art because of its many connections to Freemasonry. They reveal how the degradation of monuments, theft of relics, and censorship of ancient teachings continue to this day. Exposing recent cover-ups during the tenure of Antiquities Minister Zahi Hawass, they explain how new discoveries at Giza were closed to further research.

Clearing cultural and historical distortions, the authors reveal the long-hidden and persecuted voice of ancient Egypt and call for the return of Egypt to its rightful place as the Mother of Nations and the Mirror of Heaven.

The Master Game: Unmasking the Secret Rulers of the World
by Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock | April 2011

THE MASTER GAME is a part-conversion and update of the previous book TALISMAN (2004) which now takes into account 911 and the so-called 'War on Terror' and exposes its true origins, as well as exposes the 'clash of civilization' that is taking us heads on towards a Biblical Armageddon.

It traces an ancient conflict ---a 'master game'--- from its deepest roots in ancient Egypt, down to the 7th century rise of Islam, passing through the Crusades for the Holy Land, the Cathar genocide, the Italian Renaissance, the birth of modern Freemasonry, the US War of Independence and the Founding Fathers, the French Revolution and its aftermaths, the creation of the State of Israel in 1948, Al Qaeda and 911 and finally the on-going 'Arab Spring'.

For readers who already have TALISMAN this is a very necessary addition; and for readers who are unfamiliar with TALISMAN, get ready for the mother of all historical roller-coaster books that will change your whole worldview and open your eyes to see, quite literally, through the clever 'Masonic' cover-ups of major city plans such as Washington DC, London, Paris and Rome! Readers beware!

Black Genesis: The Prehistoric Origins of Ancient Egypt
by Robert Bauval and Thomas Brophy | April 2011

Black Genesis presents evidence that an advanced black African civilization inhabited the Sahara long before Pharaonic Egypt, and reveals black Africa to be at the genesis of ancient civilization and the human story.

The authors decipher the the mysterious Nabta Playa ceremonial area and its stone calendar circle and megaliths, and put forward the solid hypothesis that an advanced civilization of black Africans settled in the Sahara long before Pharaonic Egypt existed.

Identified as 'the star people' by the authors, it was these black Africans who brought to the Nile Valley the essential cargo of knowledge that gave rise to the Egyptian civilization. Engineer and rogue Egyptologist, Robert Bauval, and astrophysicist Thomas Brophy present anthropological, climatological, archaeological, geological, and genetic research supporting this hugely debated theory, and place black Africa back in its rightful place at the very center of mankind's origins and civilization.

The Egypt Code
by Robert Bauval | October 2006

The Orion Mystery, published in 1994, introduced the world to a highly original, and now internationally famous, star-correlation theory about the Giza Pyramids in Egypt. It sent a huge shock-wave of controversy throughout the scientific community, the effects of which are still felt today. "The Egypt Code" develops this pyramid-stars correlation, challenging the long held assumption by many Egyptologists that the pyramids were tombs principally meant to house the bodies of dead kings. In addition to this theory, Robert Bauval also reveals an amazing 'Grand Unified Plan', which involves the wonderful temple of Upper Egypt. "The Egypt Code" is unlike any other book before it and covers the whole of Egypt's ancient civilisation in a manner never before attempted. Much has been written as to 'how' the Egyptians might have aligned their monuments with such high precision, but the question that has always remained unanswered is 'why?'- why did the ancients put so much emphasis on astronomical alignments? And what could be the function, practical or symbolic, behind these mysterious alignments?

The Orion Mystery
by Robert Bauval | August 1995

This is the story of a secret, hidden for thousands of years, that will forever change our understanding of the meaning and purpose of the most fascinating wonder of the ancient world: the Pyramids of Egypt. What purpose did these massive structures, one of the largest construction projects ever undertaken, serve? Why were they scattered across the desert in a seemingly random pattern? The pyramid mystery deepened when, in 1993, researcher Rudolf Gantenbrink discovered a secret door within the Great Pyramid - a door unopened for 4,500 years. Robert Bauval has spent the last ten years investigating the pyramids themselves and the Pyramid Texts, the oldest writings known to mankind. He and Adrian Gilbert have uncovered, for the first time, the key to the plan that governed the construction of the pyramids. They reveal that, much more than just tombs, the pyramids were nothing less than a replica of Heaven on Earth. With great astronomical precision, they were created to serve as the Pharaohs' gateway to the stars. Dramatic and compelling, The Orion Mystery leads us step-by-step through these remarkable discoveries. It will be hailed as a historic achievement by all who are intrigued by the world's ancient mysteries.

Keeper of Genesis
by Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock | 1996

Guardian of the ancient mysteries, the keeper of secrets ... For thousands of years the Great Sphinx of Egypt has gazed towards the east, his eyes focussed on eternity, reading a message in the stars that mankind has long forgotten. And today, as our civilisation stands poised at the end of a great cycle, it is a message that beckons insistently to be understood.

All the clues are in place. Geology and archaeo-astronomy have already indicated that the lion-bodied sphinx may be vastly older than Egyptologists currently believe, dating not from 2500 BC, but from 10,500 BC - the beginning of the astrological Age of Leo. We now know, too, that the three pyramids of Giza, standing on high ground half a mile to the west of the Sphinx, are not merely the tombs of megalomaniac Pharaohs but form a precise map of the three stars of Orion's belt in 15 million tons of solid stone.

So is somebody trying to tell us something? And, if so, what?

In Keeper of Genesis/Message of the Sphinx, Robert Bauval (author of the Orion Mystery) and Graham Hancock (author of Fingerprints of the Gods) present a tour de force of historical and scientific detective work, using sophisticated computer simulations of the ancient skies to crack the millennial code that the monuments transcribe, and set out a startling new theory concerning the enigmatic Pyramid Texts and other archaic Egyptian scriptures.

These texts serve as an ingenious treasure trail and, as the authors reveal in their shattering conclusion, a covert treasure hunt has been underway for the last twenty years at the Pyramids and the Sphinx - a hunt bringing together senior Egyptologists, high government officials, wealthy funders, and a strange esoteric organisation lurking behind the scenes.

What are they looking for? What is contained in the rectangular chamber that seismic surveys have located in the bedrock far below the paws of the Sphinx? What lies behind the mysterious door discovered at the end of a previously unexplored shaft deep inside the Great Pyramid? And does mankind have a rendezvous with destiny - a rendezvous not in the future, but in the distant past, at a precise place and time?

The secrets can be kept no longer ...

Secret Chamber
by Robert Bauval | 1999

Written in 1999 explored the deeper layers of the Giza quest and made the linkage between the ancient 'magical knowledge' and the Hermetic Tradition that carried it across the ages and into the mainstream of our modern western intellectual and esoteric tradition. This book has been the subject of much press reviews and articles, and prompted major television documentaries which have generated heated debates at the highest of levels. They have flushed out academics from their ivory towers in droves to confront the challenges that we put before them. At long last the debate was pulled upwards to warrant the attention of the international media and, more importantly, forced into the public arena, and the global scientific and academic network of the 'establishment'.
